Students create new TV program
Show to air on Campus
Living channel
LAUREN DONOVAN
STAFF WRITER
A group of approximately 12
ECU communication students
have developed a new TV show
that focuses on the premise for
students, by students.
The show is a new all-student
production, which offers fun,
informational entertainment for
both ECU students and faculty.
Catherine Grimes, junior
broadcast journalism major, is
co-host of the newly created
program.
"We all came up with the
idea for producing our own show
after taking Dr. Tropf's class. We
enjoyed it so much that we wanted
it to continue said Grimes.
This group put together a
show they hope will reach stu-
dents both on and off campus. It
airs Wednesdays on the Campus
Living channel, 31.
The show offers a unique mix
of entertainment. Students con-
duct interviews with prominent
people around campus. They also
feature stories about new events
going on around campus and
they have just introduced a new
section called ECU cribs, where
members of the student crew
visit dorm rooms and off-campus
housing of fellow students.
"We want to produce a show
that interests students and also
keeps them up to date with ECU

The group films their on-set
broadcasts from the studio in
Joyner.
"We worked hard to take
the drab studio and transform it
into a comfortable, relaxed set
Grimes said.
Though the students just
began their new show, they have
goals set that they hope to accom-
plish in the near future.
"It would be great if Channel
23 could pick up the show. That
way, everyone in the Greenville
community would have access to
the program Grimes said.
Grimes explained what a great
experience the show has been so
far. Before the group started, the
students hardly knew each other
but they have all worked together
and become a great team.
Rebekah Page, sophomore
health services major, said she
loved the idea of a student-based
program.
"I think that it is a great way
to get students involved, espe-
cially those students who would
not usually get their faces out

Forrest Hill, junior business
major, was also excited to see the
new show.

SpeechEasy technology
helps reduce stuttering
MICHAEL HARRINGTON
SENIOR WRITER
A device developed by
researchers at ECU has been used
to reduce stuttering through use
of altered auditory feedback and is
currently being marketed by the
Janus Development Group Inc.
SpeechEasy devices are worn
in the ear, similar to hearing aids,
and allow people with stuttering
problems the ability to have their
speech digitally replayed to them
through a system of altered audi-
tory feedback, which changes the
pitch of their voice when it is
played back, inducing fluency.
Studies have shown when
people who stutter talk in unison
with others, the stutter is reduced.
The digital replay creates the per-
ception within the brain that the
individual is speaking in unison
and thereby reduces the tendency
to stutter.
"What is unique about this
particular device is that it is the
first self-contained, cosmetically
appealing device that can be
worn said Andrew Stuart, asso-
ciate professor of communication
sciences and disorders.
Stuart, along with Joseph
Kalinowski, associate professor
of communication sciences and
disorders, and Michael Rastatter,
chairman and professor of com-
munication sciences and disor-
ders, developed the SpeechEasy
device over a 10-year period of
research.
While knowledge of audi-
tory feedback and its benefits
to people who stutter has been
available for more than 40 years,
it was only recently that a change
in approach coupled with tech-
nological advances allowed the
devices to be made small enough
for use outside of a clinical setting.
The change in approach dealt
with how the results of auditory
feedback were interpreted.
It was originally thought the
reduction of stuttering due to
auditory feedback was a result of
the speaker having to slow down.
Therefore, traditional therapeutic
efforts in the past 40 years have
stressed speaking slowly to reduce
stuttering.
Stuart said their research
showed that people who stutter
could talk just as fluently when
they spoke quickly, leading them
to look into auditory causes for the
reduction of stuttering instead of
treating it as a motor disorder.
"Our first research showed
that if you asked someone to
speak as fast as they could and
they were fluent, that it didn't
have anything to do with slowing
down. It had to with the auditory
effect Stuart said.
In 2001, ECU granted licens-
ing and marketing rights to
Janus, who has sold the device
across the United States.
The product has received some
criticism from those who say that
eventually the brain will adapt,
making the product useless.
Stuart said research has indi-
cated that it has worked for indi-
viduals over a significant period
of time and that criticisms of the
SpeechEasy device are just people
being resistant to change.
The cause for stuttering Is
unknown and it is more common
in men.
"One percent of the popula-
tion stutters and that is consistent
across the globe Stuart said.
Jenny Allen, freshman mer-
chandising major, said the device'
shows that our campus is involved.

African American radio personality,

Bev Smith came to ECU to
discuss racial issues.
Smith voices racial
concerns of society
CASSIE DARKES
STAFF WRITER
Bev Smith, renowned African
American radio talk show host,
was the keynote speaker in a
discussion Friday about several
racial issues in honor of the Ledo-
nia Wright Cultural Center Day.
The theme of the program
was "Our Responsibility as Amer-
icans: Family, Education and
Civic Responsibility
The focus of Smith's presenta-
tion was the problems apparent
in communities across America
and the world, mainly In Afri-
can American communities.
She acknowledged the fact that
America is not a homogenous
society.
"Our country is at war. Most
will think that when I say 'at war
I am saying at war with Afghani-
stan, at war with Iraq but I'm
talking about here In America
said Smith.
Smith pointed out the polar-
ity present today and the sepa-
ration mostly between African
American people and Caucasian
people.
"Our country is at war inter-
nally because we are polarized
in this country more than ever
before, white against blacks - the
newspapers are not reporting it
Smith said.
The majority of the audience
was African American, but there
were several Caucasian students
In attendance.
Lindsey Scherer, senior health
education major, was one of these
students.
"Even though we have come
so far, there is still so much fur-
ther to go there is still so much
separation said Scherer.
"I'm interning in a classroom
and I notice the separation.
Even today, 1 notice the races are
against each other because I've
seen it here on campus
Smith spoke of some of the
disadvantages of African Ameri-
can people. African Americans
face every disease in America in
greater numbers. Eighty percent
of children in foster homes are
African American, some African
American musical celebrities use
derogatory terms in their music
and some African American
women have to take their chil-
dren to jail on Sundays to visit
their fathers.
"Sunday is family day at the
prison. Mothers put their baby on
their hip and take their children
to the jail to see their father. It is
training African American chil-
dren to accept jail as an accept-
able place for a black male to be
Smith said.
The title of this program
began with the word "our" and
Smith pointed out how African
Americans feel that fewer things
can be classified as "ours" in
society. This is not only with
African American people either.
Everyone is cutting everyone
out. This was a heated issue with
Smith.
"We are cutting each other
out - there is no more 'our' - we
separate ourselves. With every-
thing that we have gone through,
how dare we separate ourselves

MICHAEL HARRINGTON
SENIOR WRITER
Student Leadership Devel-
opment Programs hosted a
leadership retreat Saturday in
Mendenhall to further educate
participants on issues surround-
ing gender in society.
The retreat gave participants
the opportunity to attend work-
shops, dine together and listen to
several speakers specializing on
gender issues. The focus of the
retreat addressed and explained
issues people face in society today
relating to gender.
Workshops were hosted by
a variety of different campus
officials and were split into two
sessions, allowing those on the
retreat to pick the two workshops
that interested them the most.
There were a total of six
workshops at the retreat. Each
encouraged active discussion and
participation from attendees.
Michelle Lieberman, student
neighborhood relations facilita-
tor, hosted a workshop titled
"Gender Differences and Com-
munication" during the first
session.
A workshop titled "Strong
Bodies, Strong Leaders was
also held during the first session
and was co-hosted by Suzanne
McDonald, coordinator of fit-
ness and Leslie Warren, fitness
program assistant.
In this workshop they com-
pared leadership to the five
components of fitness, which are
muscular strength, endurance,
flexibility, cardiovascular endur-
ance and body composition.
"A leader needs to be flexible
and see projects through to the
end to show strength said
Warren.
Georgia Childs, assistant
director for peer health in Stu-
dent Wellness Education and
Ty wanna Jeffries, assistant direc-
tor in Student Wellness Edu-
cation, hosted a workshop in
each session focusing on health
issues.
During the first session they
presented "Play Safe: Tackling
Men's Health Issues which
focused on how men can better
manage their health.
In the second session they
hosted a workshop that focused
on managing health for women
titled "Women Living Healthy,
Women Living Well
Sue Martin of student pro-
fessional development, hosted a
workshop in the second session
titled "A Look at Gender Dif-
ferences in the World of Work
where attendees sat at a table and
discussed issues relating to those
differences.
ECU students Terry Gore and
Erica Hink hosted a workshop
called "Eliminating the Battle
of the Sexes where attendees
interacted in a variety of games
meant to force cooperation and
teamwork among the opposite
sexes.
Following these sessions, the
men and women were separated,
faced each other and were given
the chance to ask the opposite
sex a variety of questions about
their views and attitudes toward
sexuality and its impact on our
society. Questions ranged from
why males show little emotion
to how a female would let a male

Two escape from Robeson
County prison
LUMBERTON, NC - One of two
men who escaped from a Robeson
County prison showed up at the
home of the woman he was convicted
of kidnapping, authorities said.
Kenneth Oxendine, 30, and Patrick
Curtis Lowery, 23, escaped about 3
a.m. Sunday from the minimum-
security prison, said Sandy Thomas,
superintendent of the Robeson
Correctional Center.
Thomas said the men walked out
of their dormitory and scaled a fence
to get away. Prison guards realized
that the men were missing during a 4
am. bed check, Thomas said.
Lowery, who was in prison for
kidnapping his child's mother, went
to the woman's home in Lumberton
about 3:30 a.m, Thomas said.
Thomas said the woman called
law enforcement officers Sunday
morning and said Lowery had been
at her home.
Lowery's brother, Joshua Hunt,
21, was arrested Sunday on a charge
of aiding and abetting an escape
after the woman said he drove
Lowery to her home. His bail was set
at $5,000.
Lowery, who was serving a 37-
month sentence, had four months left
on his sentence.
Oxendine, who was convicted of
child abuse, was serving a 33-month
sentence. His release date was set for
July 21,2006.
Thomas said the escapees had
contacted other family members.
Bodies of drowning victims
recovered In Warrenton pond
WARRENTON, NC - Authorities
retrieved the bodies of two men who
drowned while fishing in a pond
outside Warrenton on Saturday.
The victims were identified as
James Brown, 48,ofVaughan and Albert
"Gramps' Pettaway Jr 53, of Manson.
Emergency responders were
summoned Friday night after a man
whom police declined to identify
reported that his two companions
had fallen into the water out of a boat
from which they were fishing.
A search and dive team arrived
about 7 p.m but officials decided
conditions were too dangerous for
divers at that time.
Bob Neal, assistant chief of the
Wan-en Rural Fire Department, said
three dive teams began searching
about 9 a.m. Saturday.
The first body was found about
10 a.m. and the second was retrieved
roughly 15 minutes later.
Both were found in four feet of
water, having drifted a distance from
the boat
The Warren County Sheriff's
Office declined to comment on the
cause of the accident.

Schwarzenegger says he wants
to ban Junk food In schools
COLUMBUS, Ohio - California
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants
to pump up his state's students with
vegetables, fresh fruits and milk.
"First of all, we in California this
year are introducing legislation that
would ban all the sale of junk food
in the schools Schwarzenegger
said during a question-and-answer
session with fans on the final day
of the Arnold Classic, the annual
bodybuilding contest that bears his
name. He said junk food would be
pulled from school vending machines
in favor of healthier foods, including
fruits and vegetables.
After the session Sunday, the
governor's aides said Schwarzenegger
supports a bill by Democratic state
Sen. Martha Escutia that would ban
soft drinks at public schools.
The administration also hopes
to develop a more comprehensive
legislative package dealing with
snack foods later in the year, said
Chief of Staff Pat Clarey, although she
added it might not eliminate all junk
food from schools.
Schwarzenegger said he still
does 30 to 45 minutes of cardlo each
day and lifts weights about four days
a week. He said he misses doing
heavy lifting, but doctors banned it
after his heart surgery In 1997.
U.S. government, Microsoft
nemesis, buys rival's software
WASHINGTON - The Justice
Department, which challenged
Microsoft Corp. in courtrooms
for nearly a decade over antitrust
violations, will pay more than $2
million each year to buy business
software from Corel Corp a leading
Microsoft rival.
The new purchase agreement,
announced Monday, makes the
latest version of Corel's WordPerfect
Office software available to more than
50,000 lawyers and other Justice
employees.
That includes the department's
antitrust division, which successfully
sued Microsoft over illegal efforts to
dominate the software Industry but
negotiated a settlement later to end
the company's court appeals.
The deal, worth up $13.2 million
over five years for Ontario-based
Corel, Illustrates that Microsoft, the
world's largest software company, still
faces pockets of intense competition
in the industry it dominates. It also
represents a high-profile sale for Corel
among lawyers, where it traditionally
has enjoyed a loyal following.
"It's a big win for them said Joe
Wilcox, a software analyst for Jupiter
Media. The Justice Department is
kind of a showcase agency
Corel's chief executive, Amish
Mehta, said the software sale was
among the company's largest
worldwide. Corel is Initially charging
the government $40 per copy to
upgrade from an earlier WordPerfect
version to its newest software, the
government said.
Privately held Corel does not
disclose sales figures. Microsoft
sold $2.8 billion worth of its Office
software programs in the final three
months of 2004.

Syria, Lebanon say troop
pullback will be completed
DAMASCUS, Syria - The
presidents of Syria and Lebanon
announced Monday that Syrian
troops will pull back to Lebanon's
eastern Bekaa Valley by March 31, but
a complete troop withdrawal will be
deferred until later negotiations.
The announcement, made after
a meeting between Syrian President
Bashar Assad and Lebanese
President Emile Lahoud, said Syrian
troops would pull back from northern
and central Lebanon to the east, near
Syria's border.
Then, rfiilitary officials from both
countries will decide within a month
how many Syrian troops will remain
In the Bekaa Valley and how long they
will stay there.
After a negotiated timeframe,
the two governments will "agree
to complete the withdrawal of the
remaining forces the statement said.
The agreement did not set a
specific timetable for that complete
withdrawal, which could fall short
of international demands that Syria
completely pull its troops from its
eastern neighbor.
However, it stated, The Syrian and
Lebanese agree on continuing the
withdrawal of Syrian Arab forces
Later, journalists saw two Syrian
military trucks loaded with furniture
heading east up the Lebanese
mountains in the first sign of a
pullback.
In Lebanon, more than 30,000
ardent protesters gathered at a
central square to continue weeks of
demands that Syria leave.
Monday's meeting came amid
intense U.Sled international pressure
on Syria to withdraw its army from
Lebanon and to stop interfering in its
smaller neighbor's affairs.
Killed Italian Intelligence officer
to be burled In state funeral
ROME - Hundreds of people
flocked to a Rome church Monday
to pay their last respects to an Italian
intelligence officer shot and killed
by American troops In Iraq while
escorting an ex-hostage to freedom.
The state funeral of Nicola
Calipari in the Santa Maria degli
Angeli church in downtown Rome
was expected to draw the country's
president, Carlo Azeglio Ciampi, and
other top officials. U.S. Ambassador
Mel Sembler and Mayor Walter
Veltronl were among those attending,
news reports said.
The funeral came after Calipari's
body lay in state at Rome's Vittoriano
monument, with tens of thousands
of people streaming past the flag-
draped coffin since the body returned
from Iraq on Saturday night.
Meanwhile, the hostage whose
life Calipari saved said it was possible
they were targeted deliberately
because the United States opposes
Italy's policy of negotiating with
kidnappers, and promised Calipari's
widow to find out why they were
attacked.
Journalist Gluliana Sgrena, who
was abducted Feb. 4 in Baghdad, was
recovering in a Rome hospital from
a shrapnel wound to the shoulder
and was not expected to attend the
funeral. Calipari was killed when
U.S. troops at a checkpoint fired at
their vehicle Friday as they headed to
the airport shortly after her release.

Smith closed her speech by
having everyone in the audi-
ence find a complete stranger.
Everyone was asked to get better
acquainted with each other and
to help close some of the gaps
in society.
Nancy Mize, assistant vice
chancellor for recreational ser-
vices, agreed with many points
Smith addressed.
"Society needs to change
and we need to start respecting
one another because if we don't
quit fighting among ourselves,
then we aren't going to survive

After this session, attendees
formed a circle and were asked
a series of more personal, con-
fidential questions. These ques-
tions ranged from experiences
with true love and their virginity
to their experiences with drugs,
alcohol and confrontations with
the law. This activity allowed the
participants to see some of their
peers that have been through
these personal experiences and
they are not alone.
The students and program
organizers reacted positively to
the day's events.
"I think it was great. The stu-
dents enjoyed it and showed they
wanted to do it again said Katie
Slagle, graduate assistant in the
office of student leadership.
She said the students were
open in expressing their personal
experiences with each other,
which indicated the program
was a success.
Stephen Gray, administrative
assistant in the ombudsmen's
office, has done much work in
arranging gender discussion
programs. He said he thought the
event's attendees were affected by
the discussions and he hopes they
take with them what they have
learned outside into the world.
"1 think it's important for
ECU to realize there are men and
women issues out there and
they're real said Gray.

director of operations, gave
insight on the 911 Commission
Report, foreign liaisons, John
Negroponte's appointment as
director of national intelligence
and reform to the infrastructure
of U.S. intelligence.
When mentioning Negro-
ponte, Stolz said people thought
he went from the second worst
job in the country to the absolute
worst job.
Negroponte was made ambas-
sador of Iraq in April 2004 and on
Feb. 17,2005 was appointed as the
first director of national intel-
ligence. Stolz said he likes
Negroponte but his job is nearly
impossible to do correctly. Stolz
does not agree with some of the
intelligence reform methods
because they sometimes focus
exclusively on upper-level man-
agement.
"Rearranging the chairs on
the A-deck is not the solution
said Stolz.
He said the challenge for
the United States would be to
train a new core of intelligence
members to remedy the existing
bureaucracy.
"It will take years to build a
viable and clandestine system
Stolz said.
Stolz said the 911
Commission Report was well
written and included a thorough
search but he does not like the
commission's recommendations.
He said most of the suggestions
had already been tried but were
riddled with shortcomings.
"A lot of it is motherhood
'do this' and 'do that Stolz said.
One of the biggest problems
Stolz mentioned was lack of col-
laboration between agencies. The
CIA was created in 1947 during
the Cold War and was designed
to catch foreign nationals who
were working as spies. At the
time it was created, President
Truman was concerned about the
agency getting too involved with
domestic intelligence. Stolz said
Truman's fears were legitimate
and a clash between the FBI
and CIA occurred. There is still
a lingering discord between the
two agencies.
Stolz also has problems with
the ambiguity of intelligence
reports. He said reports regarding
threats are filled with phrases
like "could "might" or "may
"Intelligence reports are full
of subjunctive Stolz said.
He said political correctness
is disrupting the efficiency. He
did not want to talk about the
Patriot Act specifically, but he
mentioned he had problems
with it. However, he thinks
there should be some increased
surveillance.
"1 think there should be pro-
filing Stolz said.
Stolz questions some of the
dramatic changes being done and
is worried about the U.Ss para-
noia-and habit of overreacting.
"The greatest fear is that the
terrorists will change us more
than we have changed them
Stolz said.
The recent torture incidents
in the Abu-Ghraib prison bother
Stolz as well. He was horrified
by the reports and said torture
simply does not work - it is a
useless procedure.
Stolz is recognized as an
authority on intelligence because
of his long career with the CIA.
lie is a two-time recipient of the
CIA's Distinguished Intelligence
Medal as well as the National
Security Medal.

Our View
Miscommunication is a
� tragic flaw in us all
College is full of times when communication is
essential. No one can get out of ECU without
talking to someone, looking at someone or
writing something. All of these forms of com-
munication open the door for self-expression
but also for misunderstanding.
The American Heritage Dictionary of the English
Language defines miscommunication as "a
lack of clear or adequate communication
Anything that is written, spoken or expressed
with body language has the potential to hurt
someone or something. Group projects are
an essential evil in college and everyone has
to participate in one at some point. These
"learning experiences" really do serve to show
students that communication in the workplace
will be important and they are good practice for
the real world. They are also a perfect example
of how miscommunication can lead to the
downfall of a person or group.
How can miscommunication be prevented? A
few simple steps will help people to commu-
nicate better in everything they do.
At work, in personal relationships, in class
and with friends, the most important thing to
remember is to think before you speak. What
kind of impact will this comment have on the
receiver? Will this comment potentially cause
others to view you in an undesirable way? What
may seem simple to you could really hurt or
offend someone else.
Always get your facts straight before you make
a big stink over something. Don't jump into any
situation without the proper background infor-
mation and have all of your thoughts straight
before you start blabbing. If you need them,
make some notes to keep your thoughts in order.
When in doubt, cover your butt. If you don't
know whether someone understood what
you were talking about, ask them. If you think
someone may make a mistake, prevent it from
happening. If there is doubt that someone will
do something, ask them or do it yourself.
Placing blame on others is unacceptable if you
didn't do everything in your power to prevent
miscommunication. Step up and be account-
able for your actions and voice.

Romulus, Remus and Rachel Landen?
Competition is a
double-edged sword
RACHEL LANDEN
RIVAL SIBLING
Although ECU has no place in
the collegiate clash between UNC
and Duke, there is no escaping the
famed rivalry that separates these two
schools by a greater distance than their
geographical locations.
The rivalry, arguably one of the
greatest in sports history, couldn't have
been better contrived if it were fiction.
It is a classic battle between neighbors,
complete with contrasting symbols of
public versus private, light versus dark.
Yet for all the dissimilarities, UNC and
Duke have a lot in common.
Both have strong national
reputations for their academics and
athletics, and they're just nine miles
apart. Maybe proximity pushes them
to constantly battle in order to best
the other. Whoever wins the latest
basketball game is, for a brief moment
in time, the better team. They get the
attention, the accolades and perhaps
most notably, the bragging rights.
These spoils, whether in college
basketball or even in a family, are
sometimes enough to propel us to work
that much harder. A little (friendly)
competition can be a good thing.
Feeling an external push to achieve
can help us to realize greater success
than we might otherwise reach.
However, competition often has
a negative connotation. It suggests
jealousy, treachery and aggression.
It can put two people (or groups)
against each other who, in other
circumstances, might be friends
and teammates because of their
commonalities.
Competition is at the very center
of some of the most tragic relation-
ships in history. The legend of the
city of Rome's origin is steeped
in sibling rivalry. The myth tells the
story of twins Romulus and Remus
who decided to each build a city on the
Tiber River. Decrees from heaven stated
that Romulus' city would be larger
than that of his brother. When the
city was complete and the walls built,
Remus "perhaps feeling the pangs of
jealousy" mocked his brother. Romulus
retaliated by murdering his own flesh
and blood.
Sound familiar? The Bible tells
of Cain and Abel, the sons of Adam
and Eve. Cain, whose jealousy
seemed to consume him, murdered
his younger brother.
Certainly we have all felt a part
of the jealousy experienced by Remus
and Cain. And really, that's OK, if
we don't let it overwhelm us. It can
be productive but it can also destroy.
Maybe finding the balance between
healthy competitions and encouraging
support is another of those things that
doesn't necessarily come with age, but
with maturity.
I, for one, think that I'm getting
closer. There has always been this
unspoken struggle between my sister
and me - one that we won't admit but
I think we both recognize. Finally,
though, we may be leaving that in the
past. I get that feeling whenever she
congratulates me on something I've
done or when I'm genuinely pulling for
her to overcome an obstacle.
I don't get jealous when I'm
talking to my parents and the subject
centers around my sister. I know that
we both have our strengths and
our weaknesses, some that we share
and some that are unique to each of
us. And that's a relief, because I know
I'll never have to compete with her
on a basketball court to win a title or
in life to be the more accomplished
daughter.
We can be right down the road from
each other or in the same room and still
win without the other losing. A little
competition might help us get there
but a lot of support and encouragement
will probably get us farther. That's the
best way for each of us to succeed, and
better yet, to be happy.
Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor,
The inaugural game at Clark-
LeClair stadium has come and gone,
and resulted in a win for the Pirates,
but not necessarily for the students.
I strongly believe.it is the students
who make a university what it is. When
I was making my decision of where to
go to college one of the things that
I really loved about ECU was that it
seemed to truly be a school of students
and for the students, not a school run
and dominated by its alumni. Now
don't get me wrong, I certainly appre-
ciate all that the Pirate Club has done
and continues to do for our university
through financial support, but this
time I think the Pirate Club has let us
down. Just as the forefathers of our
country said that those who are able to
protect the best interests of our coun-
try are also obligated to do so, today
here at ECU it is the duty of the
alumni to protect the best interests of
our university. In this case the Pirate
Club donates the money and so they
are responsible for making sure that
the money goes to causes that are in
the best interest of ECU and everyone
who is a part of it. I think that in
this situation they have looked out
for themselves more so than for every-
one involved with the university.
The new stadium is beautiful, and I
think that it is fit for our wonderful
university, but we cannot lose sight
of what made the jungle what it was
- the atmosphere of being able to
cook out right there at the game, to
have a dog come out and support the
Pirates and be able to drink a beer with
your friends and watch the game. I
feel like that has been lost in the build-
ing of this fancy new stadium, and
I think that if something isn't done
about it the fan support will suffer. I
will be back, because I love baseball
and I love this university, but I am
afraid that the majority of the stu-
dent population for whom a baseball
game wasn't just a baseball game, but
also a place to get together with friends
and have a good time will be lost, and
until then I hopethePirateClub will enjoy
their front row parking in the jungle.

Dear Editor,
Another reason to legalize can-
nabis is that it is Biblically correct in
response to March 2's "Living in a
culture of fear"). It is no accident that
the Bible indicates God created all the
seed-bearing plants and said they were
all good, on literally the very first page
in Genesis 1:11-12 and 29-30. The only
Biblical restriction placed on cannabis
(kaneh bosm, before the King James
Bible) is that we use it with thanksgiv-
ing (see 1 Timothy 4:1-5), where it even
describes who will promote its prohi-
bition as those who have fallen away
from the faith. It is time to stop caging
humans for using what is good.
Stan White
Dillon, Colo.
Dear Editor
From John Bream's writing (in
March 2's "Living in a culture of fear)
it appears that he intends to pursue a
medical career. 1 would suggest that
you read the Chronic Use Study done
by Dr. Ethan Russo of the University
of Montana and GW Pharmaceuticals.
GW is a British corporation, which is
bringing cannabis-based medicine to
the market with the marketing done
by Bayer. The study I refer to follows
patients who have been using the low-
quality government-provided medical
marijuana long term, without nega-
tive effects to their lungs in particular
and their health in general. Of course
higher-grade marijuana requires less
smoke to provide the benefits found
by many.
RR Gregg
Marshville, NC
Dear Editor,
John Bream in March 2's "Living in
a culture of fear" makes the common
mistake of assuming punitive mari-
juana laws actually reduce use. The
University of Michigan's Monitoring
the Future Study reports that lifetime
use of marijuana is higher in the United
States than any European country,
yet America is one of the few Western
countries that uses its criminal justice
system to punish citizens who prefer
marijuana to martinis. The short-term
health effects of marijuana are incon-
sequential compared to the long-term
effects of criminal records. Unfortu-
nately, marijuana represents the coun-
terculture to many Americans.
In subsidizing the prejudices of
culture warriors, government is sub-
sidizing organized crime. The drug
war's distortion of immutable laws of
supply and demand make an easily
grown weed literally worth its weight
in gold. The only clear winners in the
war on marijuana are drug cartels and
shameless tough-on-drugs politicians
who've built careers on confusing drug
prohibition's collateral damage with
a relatively harmless plant. The big
losers in this battle are the American
taxpayers. Students who want to help
end the intergenerational culture war
otherwise known as the war on some
drugs should contact Students for Sen-
sible Drug Policy at ssdp.org.

Pirate Rant
To the girl who cut in line ill
front of me at Mendenhall lasl
week: I would advise you to nod
do it again. And when you head
me tell my friend what you didj
don't turn around and look art
me like I'm stupid. You were the
stupid one.
To the person who said we
should get rid of the Pirate Rant: j
It is in the paper because people i
like yourself write dumb com
ments for everyone to laugh at or J
agree with. Get over it.
Thank goodness for the smok-
ing ban. I think since being on
this campus my asthma has
gotten three times worse. At least
be considerate of others. Smok-
ers, look around you before you
light up.
This is a response to the rant
about getting rid of the Pirate
Rant so more schools will take
us seriously: Maybe you should
do a little bit of research on
all the national rankings and
accomplishments of this univer-
sity before you decide to talk.
If Pirate Rant embarrasses you,
maybe you shouldn't be in this
school because it doesn't need
your pity.
To the anti-smoking wacko:
I understand you don't want to
inhale "harmful second-hand
smoke but the smoking commu-
nity has jumped through many
hoops over the years to provide
you with your right not to have
to inhale smoke. Smoking used
to be allowed in movie theaters,
elevators, planes and even class-
rooms. Now, smokers are being
persecuted for smoking outside.
It's ridiculous. Where are smokers
supposed to go?
Is there any way I can petition
against a student coming here
in the fall? Or can ECU make a
policy that your ex can't come to
ECU? Not only that but why must
he live in the same dorm as me
and try to get into every class I
am in? This could be intentional
stalking to the first degree. I
know some of you ladies feel me
on this, right?
Dude, what happened to
the crossword puzzles? There
used to be one in the paper every
day. Now, it's rare to see one in
there once a week. What's going
on?
Did anybody ever think that
with how many people smoke
on this campus that removing
it from high-traffic areas will
just make new and harder to get
through traffic areas?
I hope everybody complain-
ing about second-hand smoke
doesn't ever go downtown
because it's twice as worse in a
bar or club.
What's the big deal if some-
body smokes outside on campus? I
don't smoke and I deal with it.
What's up with people in
last week's rant calling babies
"consequences?" Were you that
bad of a child to think having a
kid is a consequence? Can people
really be that selfish? Let's hope
you never do have kids because
I will probably end up adopting
them.
Just a little JYI for the ladies:
Second-hand smoke doubles your
risk of cervical cancer. So for all
of us non-smoking ladies that
have to fight our way through
the smoke haze outside everyday,
we're screwed.
How come those in charge
of the new baseball stadium can
pull together and get it finished
in time for the tournament, and
yet the opening date for the new
West End Dining Hall changes
every week? Who's in charge of
this thing?
To the guy who says that
people who wear Sperry topsiders
and don't own a boat are posers:
Wow do you know who owns a
boat by looking at them? Rock-
port topsiders are the hot stuff,
anyway.
Girls in baseball caps are hot.
It gives them that "rugged yet
feminine" look, and I like.

'Dixie Lullaby speaks of the South
Mark Kemp, a 1983 ECU graduate, reflects southern culture in his book, Dixie Lullaby.
ECU alumni Mark Kemp
explains the 'Hospitality
of Southern Rock'
KYLE BILLINGS
STAFF WRITER
Along with strong academics
and excellence in many fields,
ECU is also known for propel-
ling people into influence in all
realms of society. Sandra Bullock,
Vince McMahon and NFL quar-
terback Jeff Black all cheered for
the men and women in purple
and gold. Among these successful
people that have walked through
Wright Plaza, gotten tickets at
Mendenhall and perhaps par-
taken in the delicious cuisine at
Mendenhall, is a man known as
Mark Kemp.
The class of 1983 included
an English major, Mark Kemp,
who would diversify his career
resume with posts at prestigious
establishments. His forte is and
remains spotlighting entertain-
ment, and since his graduation,
he has worked with Discover
Magazine, Rolling Stone as a music
editor, MTV as the music editorial
vice president and was nomi-
nated for a Grammy for his linear
notes on the CD compilation
entitled Farewells and Fantasies
by the 1960's protest singer Phil
Ochs. Currently he is the enter-
tainment editor at The Charlotte
Observer. His most recent work is
entitled Dixie Lullaby: A Story or
Music, Race and New Beginnings in
a New South.
In his new book, Kemp pieces
together a personal memoir of the
historical experiences during his
lifetime, and the influence of the
South and its music had on him.
And what person doesn't have a
certain song that takes them to a
place in time's past? A memorable
album often is the most legiti-
mate piece to the puzzle that con-
nects us to our pasts. For Kemp it
was Southern rock, and how the
sound of The Allman Brothers
and Lynyrd Skynyrd resonated
in him, providing a new affin-
ity toward music. Kemp's new
ECU students show off talent

Art to be displayed in
campus gallery
TREVOR WORDEN
STAFF WRITER
What is a great way to pass
time between classes or when
you are not doing anything? Try
visiting Gray Art Gallery located
in the Jenkins art building begin-
ning this Wednesday. Carefully
chosen pieces made by ECU
undergraduate students will be
displayed, and be available for
viewing until April 9.
More than 200 art pieces were
submitted for display in the show,
but only the best representations
of each genre were chosen. There
were seven teachers, dubbed
the title of, "area coordinators"
who selected the artwork to be
seen in the show, one of which
was Paul Hartley. He said while
one teacher could really like a
particular piece, each work had
to be voted upon by all seven
teachers before it was submitted
into the show. When asked what
he considered good art, Hartley
said, "Good art varies - it has to
project the feeling and passion of
the artist He continued saying
"It (good art) must include two
things: unity and the communi-
cation of a central feeling
At the opening of the Under-
graduate Art Exhibit there will be
awards given out in various cat-
egories to the respective genres.
Each year a guest of the art school
visits ECU to pick out the best
artwork. The woman in charge of
picking the winners this year is
Mara Scrupe. Scrupe is a sculptor
from Washington, D.C. Recently
she has resided in Denmark,

When asked why she enjoyed art
she responded, "It is a way for one
to express itself in a different way

book chronicles Southern rock,
illustrating the evolution from
the 1970s to today, and demon-
strating the core of its appeal to
southerners. A Charlotte Observer
review of the book discusses the
impact that the Allman Broth-
ers and Lynyrd Skynyrd had on
young southerners: "Both musi-
cians expressed the pain and
insecurity of the New South as
young whites tested and rejected
the prejudices of their parents
and grandparents. Young white
southerners did not have the role
models of leaders such as King,
so, as Kemp points out, they
turned to music for answers. The
Allman Brothers and Van Zant's
band Lynyrd Skynyrd gave voice
to a generation and helped it
find a new identity that kept its
Southern character intact
Mark Kemp states in an inter-
view with WUNC 91.S FM that,
"The Allman Brothers created
a soundtrack that relieved the
weightiness for young south-
erners of their guilt, fear and
economic insecurities the family
legacies of racism the drudgeries
of a rural working class exis-
tence
Kemp explains how bands
such as The Allman Brothers
genuinely expressed the sadness
and gravity during a time of such
racial hostility and tension in the
South. He cites the nation had an
overall notion that the south was
a "cesspool of racism Lynard
Skynard emerges to show pride in
living in the South, and in songs
such as "Sweet Home Alabama"
they expressed a rebuttal to
resentment of the apparent lack
of southern comfort.
Dixie Lullaby has enjoyed
praise throughout the country,
appearing on various bestsellers
lists. Mississippi fiction writer
Larry Brown warmly wrote about
Kemp's book, "As a child of the
South and the 1960s, I know in
my heart that Mark Kemp has
told the truth about what grow-
ing up here and loving music was
like. But you don't have to be a
southerner' to get it. Anybody
whose listened to rock & roll or
voted for the last 40 years or so
ought to be delighted by this
fascinating, well-written and
entertaining new book
Kemp has been featured on
numerous television and radio
broadcasts including WUNC
91.5 FM and John Seigenthaler's
well-known show "A Word on
Words
The radio introduction of
Kemp on air explains, Dixie
Lullaby' grew out of my experi-
ences both in the music industry
and as a southerner, born and
raised in Asheboro, NC Such
a story is highly relatable to the
students at ECU, many being
from the South, undoubtedly
hearing "Sweet Home Alabama"
blaring from the stereo innu-
merable times throughout their
childhood. Kemp also provides
a familiar background, a success-
ful southern boy hailing from
college in G-Vegas. A story of
music, race and the south would
provide needed entertainment
for any Greenville resident, espe-
cially coming from one of our
own.

Brody School of Medicine:
Health care for strong future
Education and caring at
the heart of the legacy
JESSICA CRESON
SENIOR WRITER
The Brody School of Medi-
cine was not always a part of
ECU. It was only about 30 years
ago students enrolled in the
four-year program and only six
years ago was it named Brody
School of Medicine at ECU.
In the 1960s a few men in
the eastern North Carolina
area were concerned that there
would not be enough medical
professionals to replace the
generation of that time. ECU
was not quite ECU yet when
this idea arose - it was still East
Carolina College.
Although, it was a short
amount of time that ECC
became ECU and this is when
the medical school proposal was
taken seriously.
It started out as a medical
division that was only a one-
year program where students
had to seek another source of
education afterward.
The General Assembly of
North Carolina made the funds
available for a four-year medical
school.
From the beginning there
were three things that were con-
sidered to be at the top of the list
of priorities: first, to increase the
number of the finest physicians
for the state. Then to improve
the health status of eastern
North Carolirta's citizens and to
better the chances for students
who are at a disadvantage and
or are a minority to receive an
education in medicine.
Caring is an essential at BSOM.
These principles are still
enforced with the various pro-
grams offered for either medical
students, residents and fellows
or doctoral students who are
in basic medical sciences. Prac-
ticing physicians are also still
offered these programs for fur-
ther education as times might
change and progress.
The faculty and student
interaction is close, which is why
only 72 students are accepted
per year to keep attention on
each student unavoidable.
"I do not know of anyone
in the medical school, but I do
know a few people who have
had to apply to other medical
schools because ours filled up
too quickly said Brooke Hill, a
senior marketing major.
Hands-on learning is also
unavoidable with the small
number of students. This allows
for smaller classes and a diverse
curriculum.
BSOM must have a dedicated
staff to stay in tune with stu-

ECU men, women play club lacrosse with great success
Hard working students
take the field
AMANDA WINAR
STAFF WRITER
She sprints down the field
toward her opponent, squinting
into the sun with dirt-tinted
sweat running down the inside
of her jersey. Dodge left, spin and
fake right. Arms go up - swoosh.
A catch, a pass, a score.
Sound fun? Well according
to junior Angie Jusino, president,
captain and coach of the ECU
Women's Lacrosse team, it is just
another exciting day in the life
of a lacrosse player. Lacrosse is
a field game played by teams of
10 players who use long-handled
sticks with a net to catch and
pass and eventually score with
a ball. ECU has had a women's
club team for about eight years,
but Jusino said, "It wasn't until
recently that the team has really
become established. We used to
have like five girls come out for
practice we usually have like
25 at practices now
Jusino said it is hard not
having a coach, but overall they
are having a great season. Every
fall the ECU Lacrosse teams hold
a big tournament here at ECU.
"This spring, April 16 and 17
we are going for the first time, be
holding our league tournament,
CWLL, here. There are going to
be nine girls' teams from all over
North Carolina Jusino said.
For anyone interested in join-
ing in their fun, the Women's
Lacrosse team can be contacted at
ecuulacrossets'hotmail.com. For
more information you can also
check them out at eculacrosse.
tripod.com.
Besides the relatively newly
formed Women's Lacrosse team,
ECU also has a men's team.
Senior Jamie Montgomery,
president of the men's club said
ECU varsity lacrosse has been
around ECU since the 1960s, but
at that time the team was varsity.
For at least 10 years they had been
in the National College Lacrosse
League, which is made up.of club
teams who set up everything
independently, games and rules
wise. Last spring however, ECU
decided to join the United States
Lacrosse Intercollegiate Associa-
tion instead.
When asked why the sudden
change to a different league,
Montgomery said, "We got tired
of teams not showing for games
and being disorganized, so we
joined this new league, which is
made up of teams from all over
the country. None of which have
varsity programs
ECU men's lacrosse is the perfect representation of the word "team
The men's lacrosse club team's
long-term goal is to become a
varsity team at ECU, and Mont-
gomery noted they are well on
their way.
"We were in the "B" league
last year in the SELC, and won
our conference, going 10-2 on
the season and were ranked third
in the country among division B
teams. Following last spring, we
were voted to be moved to the
"A" league, where we play teams

Casey Concelmo is also a
senior paintingdrawing major.
Ills two works that were chosen
for the show are entitled "The
Gift" and "Sabrina "Sabrina"
was painted under the influence
of the relatively new movement
of neo-renaissance. This move-
ment in art is meant to bring
"purity and integrity back into
art and into the world" as stated
by Concelmo. The movement
focuses on the good in our envi-
ronment and in human beings.
Concelmo said people should
come to the art show ready to be
inspired.
Each student said their works
took at least three weeks to com-
plete, but many students required
much more preparation for their
art. All of the students in the
show were very anxious to allow
the public to view and scrutinize
their work. Each was ready for
their final product to be set on
the gallery walls and enjoyed by
students and faculty alike.
ECU features the largest
studio program in North Caro-
lina. The studio program is
completely accredited by the
National Association of School
of Art and Design. Areas repre-
sented in the upcoming exhibit
will include: art foundations,
ceramics, graphic design, digital
arts, illustration, photography,
weaving, textile design, draw-
ing, metal design, painting,
printmaking, sculpture, video
and wood design. Freshmen
through senior art students were
eligible for the show and could
have several different works in
the exhibition under different
genres. All works had to be cre-
ated within the last two years and
were hand selected for approval
by "area coordinators
For those of you who
find yourself bored on lazy
Saturdays, or on slow weekdays
take a stroll down to Gray Art
Gallery and view the works of
the next possible Monet, Dali,
Warhol or Picasso. Going to the
art gallery is a great way to break
up the monotonous workdays
or boring weekends. It is also a
great way to check out the talent
that is so plentiful on our diverse
campus.
Gray Art Gallery is located
on the second floor of the Jen-
kins Fine Arts Center. They are
opened from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. on
weekdays, and from 10 a.m. - 2

dents, to teach them well tor real
situations and to keep up with
technology.
The faculty as well as one of
the themes associated with BSOM
is caring. It is stressed in the class-
rooms and in the hospital itself.
The value of a small town and the
importance of its needs, as well
as the surrounding areas, are of
high concern also. Since most of
the students enrolled af from
North Carolina, this understand-
ing would come naturally.
Teachings include real-life
experience and objective methods
with training in clinical medicine
and labs with simulated patients
integrated in curriculum.
"While I am aware of the
importance and significance
of the ECU medical school, I
am unaware of the details of
the programs or what makes it
significant said Courtney Stef-
fenhagen, a sophomore child
development major.
There are nine residency
programs that are specialized in
training of graduate physicians.
Family medicine is the largest of
these programs with 12 positions
in each three years of training.
The other programs include
emergency medicine, internal
medicine, obstetrics and gynecol-
ogy, pediatrics, pathology and
laboratory medicine, psychiatric
medicine, surgery and physical
medicine and rehabilitation.
Once again, the focus on
relationships is emphasized with
college students, faculty and
residents throughout various
environments in the learning
experience at the BSOM.
Research at the medical
school is another important
aspect of the BSOM. There is cur-
rently research being conducted
on various medical conditions
such as, diabetes, cancer therapy,
allergic disease, cardiovascular
disease, alcohol and drug abuse,
obesity, transplant immunology
and biotechnology.
Researchers use innovative
ways as well as traditional tech-
niques to do their research.
The BSOM is now in an impor-
tant partnership with University
Health Systems of Eastern Caro-
lina and various physicians.
According to BSOM Web site,
"the school is the educational
centerpiece of one of North Caro-
lina's largest and most productive
academic medical centers

Diamond Bucs defeat
UM in pitchers' duel,
dominate Bulldogs
BRENT WYNNE
SENIOR WRITER
In a field that contained
Ohio State, Michigan, Arizona
State, ECU, No. 4 North Carolina
and No. 7 Georgia, the general
consensus amongst the writers
of college baseball was that the
Heels and the Bulldogs would
use this weekend to prove why
they were garnering so much
hype in the polls. The exact
opposite occurred however, as
the two powerhouses combined
to go 1-5 in six games with UNC
dropping all three contests they
competed in.
ECU Head Coach Randy
Mazey feels that the rough week-
end from the two top 10 teams
is testament to the quality of the
tournament.
"This is as good of tourna-
ment as you'll see anywhere
said Mazey.
"1 don't know of another
amateur tournament in the
nation the last 10 years, includ-
ing any regional you could go to,
that was as good as this one
"This rivals an Omaha cali-
ber field. So 1 hope it was excit ing
for the fans, it was exciting for us
to open the new stadium, it was
a great event and something we
want to continue to do as long
as I'm here
Arizona State, who entered
the classic with the worst overall
record at 8-10, went undefeated in
three games, with wins over UNC,
ECU and Ohio State by scores of
4-3, 10-3 and 3-0 respectively.
The Pirates survived the
strong field with a 2-1 tourna-
ment record. The Diamond Bucs
opened up with a 2-1 over Michi-
gan, followed by a tough 3-10 loss
to the Sun Devils, then bounced
back in a big way with a huge
victory over the seventh ranked
Dawgs, 7-1.
In that contest, southpaw Jeff
Ostrander pitched 7.1 brilliant
innings of scoreless ball, sur-
rendering only two hits and two
walks while striking out seven.
"Hats off to what he did
tonight Mazey said.
"He hasn't gone that deep this
year and he really kept them off
balance with basically two pitches,
his fastball and change up, and
really had command of them.
"That was as good of a win
as we've had in this program
in a while. They're a good club,
and they're going to win a lot of
games this year
Responding from the 10-3
loss Saturday to Arizona State, the
Pirates made sure the opposition
"If they would've scored two
runs in the first as opposed to us,
in the back of your mind you're
"That was as good of
a win as we've had
in this program in a
while. They're a good
club, and they're
going to win a lot of
games this year
RANDY MAZEY
ECU HEAD COACH
thinking 'Oh boy I hope the same
thing doesn't happen again
Mazey said.
"When we came out and
jumped on them early, I think that
set the tone for the whole game.
It gave Ostrander an opportunity
to go out there and hammer
the strike zone. And we played
another great game defensively.
"So if we continue to pitch
well and play defense as good as
we have, we're going to win a lot
of games
The Pirates opened the scor-
ing in the contest with two in the
first. Billy Richardson led off the
frame with an infield single to
shortstop. After Drew Costanzo
flied out to center and Mark
Minicozzi struck out looking, DH
Mike Grace reached on an error
by Bulldog third baseman Adam
McDaniel. Jake Smith walked
to load the bases with two outs,
which set up a two RBI single
from Adam Witter, giving ECU
the early 2-0 lead.
The Diamond Bucs went for
the jugular in the fourth and
connected with five runs.
With runners on second and
third with one out, Harrison
Eldridge drove in Witter from
third with a groundout to the
pitcher. Richardson then tripled
to center, scoring Dale Mollen-
hauer who singled earlier in the
inning. Costanzo and Minicozzi
then put the finishing touches
on Georgia starter Brooks Brown,
hitting back-to-back home runs
to push the lead to 7-0. The
Bulldogs' only run came via the
long ball that came in the eighth
when pinch hitter Joey Side took
reliever Kevin Rhodes deep to
left. It was the first batter after
Ostrander was pulled.
"1 believe our guys believe in
themselves now and I believe in
them Mazey said.
"I believe we can go on the
field with anybody in the nation
and contend with them. Look
out for this team - if we get some
pitching down the stretch and
get some guys back, this team
is capable of doing some things.
We're going to be exciting to
watch down the road here, and if
we can get our starting pitchers
to get into the sixth and seventh
inning, and stay out of our bull-
pen too deep, then I think we
really have a chance to have a
good season
Richardson and Minicozzi
led ECU at the plate with two
hits a piece. With the win on the
mound, Ostrander improves to
1-1 on the season.
In game one of the tourna-
ment and the first ever in Clark-
LeClair stadium, the Pirates took
on Michigan. As was the case
against Georgia, pitching was the
key in this game, as P.J. Connelly
was stellar for the Bucs, going
seven innings, scattering four
hits and one earned run en route
to a 2-1 victory. Wolverine starter
Michael Penn matched blows
with Connelly, as he allowed
only two hits, while striking out
six in 7.2 innings of work.

ing Mazey said.
"That's as good a pitcher
that you will see anywhere in
college baseball. The fact that
we only had three hits s?ys
nothing about our hitters, but
says everything about the guy
on the mound
Freshman T.J. Hose came
on in relief of Connelly in the
eighth inning and was credited
with the win after the Pirates
scored the game winner in the
bottom of the inning. The fresh-
man was outstanding, striking
out the side in the inning, then
working a perfect ninth to secure
the victory.
"As a kid growing up, this
was what I was expecting and
hoping for, and it's coming
true said Hose.
"It was an awesome feeling.
I've never played in front of a
crowd like this
The length of the game
reflected that of a pitchers' duel,
as the contest lasted only two
hours and 26 minutes.
"If you're a baseball
enthusiast and like old time
baseball, that's what you saw
todayMazey said.
"It was very well pitched on
both sides, well played defen-
sively and really only a couple
of opportunities to score runs
in this entire game.
"We got them together in the
seventh inning and told them
that good teams win games In the
seventh, eighth and ninth, and
that's what we found a way to do
ECU broke a scoreless tie in
the bottom of the third when
outfielder Jay Mattox scored
on Richardson's sacrifice fly.
Richardson then scored the
game winner in the eighth,
coming home after Minicozzi
singled through the left side.
Richardson went S-for-11 in
three games with four RBI and
has emerged as the leader of the
Pirates in his senior year.
"I really trusted my hands, and
stayed back said Richardson.
"I just tried to see the ball well.
"As one of the seniors, 1
took it upon myself to step
up and coach talked to me
about it. I feel like I can lead
these guys this year, and take us
to Omaha
The LeClair classic was a dis-
play of great baseball talent, and
gave fans some great games and
big upsets. While baseball was
the main focus of the weekend,
Mazey and the boys never lost
and never will lose sight of the
man they are playing for - Keith
LeClair. In a ceremony before
the Michigan, ECU game Friday,
LeClair was honored with a com-
memorative plaque while his
two kids ran out to the mound
to deliver the first pitch.
"You felt the heart inside your
chest, and that moment kind of
got to you a little bit Mazey said.
"A lot of our guys really
don't know Keith, but just seeing
what transpired today, it's a
special moment for everybody
involved, and I'm just glad that
we could win the game for him
The average attendance for
the weekend was 4,110 for each
session, with the high being just
over 5,000 for the Arizona State,
ECU game Saturday night.
The Pirates return to action
on Tuesday when they do battle
with in-state opponent NC A&T
at home. First pitch is scheduled
for 3 p.m.
